India’s largest and ﬁrst homegrown podcast hosting, creation and distribution platform Hubhopper Studio is delighted to announce Power of Podcasts. A new project supporting NGOs, activists, educators, mental health experts, content creators and entrepreneurs to share their vision with the world through podcasts. Developed in the run up to International Podcast Day on the 30th September the project is currently open to submissions for anyone who’d like to feature their podcasts.
Podcasts have one of the most engaged audiences of all content platforms. With over 57.6 M+ podcast listeners in India alone, they represent one of the best ways to get our message out there and spread positive change.
The Power of Podcasts hopes to harness the strength of podcasts to amplify positive and meaningful conversations. Organizations are invited to take part by encouraging their community or members to create new podcasts and Hubhopper will support them with tutorial videos and self-help decks. Once 10 members from a community have submitted a podcast they will be on-boarded as Hubbhopper Co-Curators.
Hubhopper Co-Curator’s content will be highlighted across a range of promotional material as well individual members being invited to a virtual summit to celebrate their work and discuss
ways to further their messages. All the nominated podcasts will be highlighted on the Power of Podcasts playlist released on International Podcast Day
As India’s largest podcasting platform Hubhopper Studio has given a voice to thousands of creators across India including changemakers such as Women in Labour which asked why Indian women are dropping out of the workforce faster than ever; or What’s A Man? Which addressed important issues around gender inequality in India. Through the Power of Podcasts Hubhopper hopes to continue supporting and promoting meaningful and impactful content.
